A gun disguised as a smartphone is all set to hit stores, and the creator of this 'Cellphone gun' says it’s perfectly safe for the public, according to Fox45Now report.

Ideal Conceal CEO Kirk Kjellberg came up with the idea when he was looking around and noticed everyone carries a smartphone. And, it was after almost a year of engineering that the product got approval from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.

However, as per the report, not everyone thinks it is a good idea. Jeff Pedro who served as a police officer in Kettering for 25 years said 'it’s just a bad idea from a safety perspective'. Using it in a rapid situation would be difficult owing to the inability to get it out and functional in the nick of time.

Though the transformation takes seconds, it would take some time to get into the firing position and proves its inability to serve in an emergency situation.  

On the other hand, most people own a smartphone, so it can be completely overlooked, giving ideas to some malicious minds. The guns will be mass produced and available by end of summer, as per report.
